Whenever someone filed a complaint against you involving negligence at work, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An RN from Houston, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who found to be negligent while on duty.
On or about September 2, 2017, while employed in a medical facility in Houston, the RN failed to document frequent vital signs for a patient. Her conduct created an incomplete medical record and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would not have complete information to base their decisions for further care.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. During the hearing, the RN admits she forgot to document frequent vital signs but states she had the vital signs monitor taking frequent vital signs throughout the procedure.
However, the Board states that her conduct could create an inaccurate medical record that would affect the patient’s medication in the future.
Furthermore, the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
Having all these problems was never easy and should never be dealt with alone. You need someone who can help you at times like these, someone that is very reliable and knows what to do if you are facing such allegations or accusations. Any problem always has a solution.
Do not fret if you find yourself in a similar situation the same as that of the RN mentioned above. All you need to do is to find the right nurse attorney who can help you in the case. Equip yourself with the knowledge and expertise you need for a successful outcome by consulting a knowledgeable and experienced Texas nurse attorney. Contact the Law Office of Yong J.
